Springkell House secures £650,000 for expansion
Expanding: Springkell House
Springkell House, based in Dumfries & Galloway, has secured funding to help with the redevelopment and expansion of the venue’s hotel facilities.
The £650,000 package from Barclays will allow the owners to redevelop the quadrangle annex, adding an additional six en suite bedrooms and increasing capacity to 26 guest rooms. Situated near Gretna Green, the venue hosts around 50 weddings each year and other functions.
The house has been owned by the Johnson-Ferguson family since 1894, having been passed to Lady Johnson-Ferguson in 1953 and to her great grandson James since 2009.
The property was re-opened for accommodation and events in 2013 following a substantial refurbishment programme.
